Opposite some stiff competition from NBC, it wasn’t an impressive start to the season. Compared to the seventh season opener, Bones was down by 30% in the demo (vs a 3.3 rating) and down by 20% in viewership (vs 10 million). It’s worth noting however that last season’s debut followed The X Factor and this year’s opened the night.

Still, compared to the sixth season premiere, Bones was down by 15% in the demo and by 19% in viewers.


Reference point: The 2011-12 (seventh) season averaged a 2.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 8.07 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you still like the Bones TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a ninth season?

Please renew Bones because the show always has a great story line. I love the actors in the show because they make you believe in the characters they portray. Please don’t lose this great show that shows justice can be found.
